Is it possible to use external (system) svn for 9999-ebuilds?

is there a reason the gentoo installed svn wont work ? gentoo can only
manage its own packages, it knows nothing about other packages, few
exceptions are libc. if you really want there is package.provided

1. Mac OS X 10.5 comes with not-so-ancient SVN
2. SVN is big enough so I expect long compilation
3. I assume SVN is used by portage only as a command-line tool

that is defined by time, and won't hold for long

many things do, that's Gentoo live

it's actually not used in normal operation by Portage, but it may be
used as library by other consumers.

Fixing that and dependencies is much harder than just compiling a proper
version that we know what it's doing instead of relying upon some
unknown-version unknown-compiled version of a package.
